BLOG TOUR STOP: Quintessentially Q by Pepper Winters: Review and Deleted Scene Snippets!

ebookembed (3)
“All my life, I battled with the knowledge I was twisted… fucked up to want something so deliciously dark—wrong on so many levels. But then slave fifty-eight entered my world. Hissing, fighting, with a core of iron, she showed me an existence where two wrongs make a right.”

Tess is Q’s completely. Q is Tess’s irrevocably. But now, they must learn the boundaries of their unconventional relationship, while Tess seeks vengeance on the men who sold her. Q made a blood-oath to deliver their corpses at Tess’s feet, and that’s just what he’ll do.

He may be a monster, but he’s Tess’s monster.

Wow! Getting inside Q’s head…is just wow!  Q and Tess’ relationship is truly one “fucked-up-fairy-tale,” but it’s their fairytale that works for them.

Quintessentially Q picks up right after the first book. I don’t know what it is, but reading their story makes me tense. It took me on a thrill-ride, that scared me to continue to read, but I just couldn’t stop.

You’d think that Tess and Q would live a happy life after all they been through in Tears of Tess, but no…their lives kept getting more dangerous and crazier and it did not stop to the very end of this book.

Q and Tess are hot behind closed doors. Their need for each other is probably screwed up and intimidating for us normal people, but it works for them. It’s what these two need with each other.

“I wanted to be her first and last
and fucking forever…”

I don’t want to spoil it for you, but this book made me stop breathing. Ms. Winter really knows how to capture your attention and vividly tell a story. What Q and Tess go through was so dark and emotional it felt real. I have to say this was my favorite of the series, because we were able to get inside Q’s mind and see how tormented he is. And the end is a HEA, but their story will continue in Twisted Together (Monsters in the Dark #3) coming early 2014. And I can’t wait to get my hands on it!


Deleted Scene#1
The urge to just touch her, not to inflict pain or consume her, grabbed me around the back of the throat. I looked over my shoulder. She stood not far away. Her hair whipping around her as the helicopter ascended into the sky and her skirt torn from my rough handling. If I looked closer, I saw the faint crinkle of where my hands had marred her blazer, and the redness of the tie burn around her wrists.

#2
He struck almost tenderly but it still hurt like a bitch. I cried out as the tiny tails and beads of the whip kissed my skin with red hot licks. The pain radiated like an earthquake from an epicentre and Q kept touching me, kept stroking till the pain threaded with the sensation of his fingers and I no longer knew what pain was. It was all delicious. Nothing but pleasure.

Synopsis

“My life was complete. Happy, content, everything neat and perfect.
Then it all changed.
I was sold.”

Tess Snow has everything she ever wanted: one more semester before a career in property development, a loving boyfriend, and a future dazzling bright with possibility.

For their two year anniversary, Brax surprises Tess with a romantic trip to Mexico. Sandy beaches, delicious cocktails, and soul-connecting sex set the mood for a wonderful holiday. With a full heart, and looking forward to a passion filled week, Tess is on top of the world.

But lusty paradise is shattered.

Kidnapped. Drugged. Stolen. Tess is forced into a world full of darkness and terror.

Captive and alone with no savior, no lover, no faith, no future, Tess evolves from terrified girl to fierce fighter. But no matter her strength, it can’t save her from the horror of being sold.

Can Brax find Tess before she’s broken and ruined, or will Tess’s new owner change her life forever?

Synopsis

“After battling through hell, I brought my esclave back from the brink of ruin. I sacrificed everything—my heart, my mind, my very desires to bring her back to life. And for a while, I thought it broke me, that I’d never be the same. But slowly the beast is growing bolder, and it’s finally time to show Tess how beautiful the dark can be.”

Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less. Tess may have leashed and tamed him, but he’s still a monster inside.

Karmen
Karmen’s Review of Enslaved by the Ocean

4 stars out of 5

I’m a fan of the author’s books. I loved her MC Sinners series, so I knew this was going to be just as good. And it was!

What I loved about this book is it’s a different spin on a “club.” It was like a MC on the ocean! Hendrix, the Captain of Pirates, he scared the crap out of me a first; but there was something about him that I knew it wasn’t bad at all!

Indigo, this heroine lived through a lot–a lot of abuse, but she didn’t let it control her. She stood up for herself and was determine to live through anything that life was going to throw at her.

This book was filled with twists and turns and definitely filled with hot sexual tension between Indi and Hendrix. Their scenes were SMOKIN’! This book ended with a slight cliffhanger, with a HEA, so it’s worth the read. I just loved the ending and then that little surprise that caught me off guard…I cannot wait to read Where the Darkness Lies to find out what happens.

A fantastic weekend read if you love MC books, then you’ll love this new take on Pirates…ARRAH!

heartdividerPostExcerpt

“Stand up, this will be easier if you do,” he orders. He stands, taking me with him, and I lose my balance when I accidentally try to lift the wrong foot. Hendrix reaches out, taking my shoulder and goes to take a step forward to steady me, only to realize he’s wrapped the rope around his ankle, and is now tangled too. As if in slow motion, we topple backwards. I scream, and land with a thump on the ground as the ropes surround me. Hendrix lands over me, but manages to put his hand down to stop me taking the force of his body. He’s pressing into me in places he really shouldn’t be.

“Fuck,” he curses, tugging his hand to try and untangle it.

“How the hell did you get tangled too?” I cry out, squirming.

“Stop fuckin’ squirming like that,” he orders, and I stop as soon as I realize why he’s asked me to. He’s hard. My God, he’s hard.

“You’re…you’re…”

“I’m fuckin’ hard because you’re squirming against me. I’m a man. Get over it.”

ARC Review: Masquerade (Games #3) by Nyrae Dawn

mas
Releases on January 7, 2014!

ARC courtesy of Forever
(Grand Central Publishing) for an honest review.

Maddox Cross has always had to be tough. When his father went to jail for murder, the teenager took care of his sister and mother. Now on his own and working security at a night club, Maddox wants to become a tattoo artist-a dream that comes closer to reality when he falls for the hottest, most tatted woman he’s ever seen. She’s wild and beautiful, and Maddox will do anything to be with her.

Bee Malone came to town to open up her new tattoo parlor, Masquerade. Since being kidnapped as a young girl, Bee has had trouble getting close to anyone. But when she meets Maddox, she sees that under his hard biker’s body is the sensitive soul of an artist. What starts out as a sizzling one-night stand soon becomes so much more.

Bee wants Maddox to join her tattoo business, but letting him into her life means revealing all her most intimate secrets. And as the past begins to intertwine with her present, Bee fears their love may not be as permanent as their ink . . .

Asian Chick Karmen and White Chick Jenn’s Review

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

What a ride! Masquerade is the third book in the Games series and just like the others, it did not disappoint! These books are filled with heartache, pain, anger and love–that keeps you wanting more from all the characters.

Maddox is the big brother of Laney, who we meet in Facade. We all know that dark family secret that Maddox, Laney and Adrian endured. And as hard as it was for Laney and Adrian to move on and to forgive–they did and did it together. But Maddox continues to hold a lot of blame and can’t seem to let it go, until he meets Bee. Maddox met his match in Bee.

Bee is a feisty owner of a new tattoo parlor, named Masquerade! She herself has guilt and secrets–I was shocked at how unique her story was–which made her character and story really interesting! Maddox and Bee worked together at the shop, but continued to fight their attraction and their denial of their secrets. For most of the book, they skirted around their issues (which drove me insane), but they both had to trust each other first. As time goes on and more secrets are unveiled and tragedy happens–it all changes for them.

Maddox and Bee were perfect together—they both were broken, but together they were strong. I loved getting more Laney, Adrian, Colt and Cheyenne in this book. Laney and Adrian’s story is still heartbreaking and it continued in this book! But the epilogue was the perfect ending to all their stories and they all seemed to find closure.
